  • 1 Parchment Paper
  • 1 Cookie sheet
  • Serrated Knife


  • 5 Tbsp Butter unsalted, room temperature
  • Cup Sugar
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 Tbsp Lemon zest
  • 3 Tbsp Lemon juice
  • 2 Cups Flour All purpose
  • Tsp Baking powder
  • ¼ Tsp Salt
  • ½ Cup Pistachios Chopped
  • 10 Oz White chocolate chips


  • Pre heat oven to 350°. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  • Combine the flour, salt and baking powder in a medium bowl and set aside.
  • Cream together the butter and sugar, beating it until it is fluffy.
  • Add the eggs, one at a time, the lemon juice and lemon zest. Beat until they are fully incorporated into the batter.
  • Add the flour mixture and beat until all of the flour disappears.
  • Transfer the dough to the prepared baking sheet and form into a log that is about 3-4" wide by about 3/4" high. Use your hands to flatten the dough and shape it. If the dough is sticky you may need to flour your hands.
  • Bake the biscotti for 30 minutes. Remove the cookie sheet from the oven and allow it to cool for about 10 minutes.
  • Using a sharp serrated knife, cut the cookies into ½" slices and lay them on the cookie sheet, cut side up.
  • Reduce the oven temperature to 300°. Bake the cookies for 10 minutes. Turn them over and bake for 10 more minutes. Remove the biscotti from the oven and cool completely.
  • While the biscotti are cooling, place the chocolate chips in a medium sized, microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds, remove from the microwave and give them a stir. Continue to do this until the chocolate is completely melted and smooth.
  • Decorate the biscotti with the white chocolate any way you like. Dip the ends, bottoms or drizzle the chocolate on the biscotti. Lay them on a wire rack to dry.
  • The finished biscotti can be stored in an airtight container for 2 weeks or frozen for up to 3 months.
